In February 2018, Jennifer Aniston announced her split with Justin Theroux after their two-and-a-half year marriage. This is her second divorce; she ended her marriage to Brad Pitt in 2005.
The 49-year-old actress has been at the center of tabloid fodder for decades, her face splashed across magazine covers. Rumors and speculation continue to swirl around her, and headlines are particularly focused on her love life and even her “ability” to hold a relationship.
Now Jennifer is addressing the tireless rumor mill head on, in a brand-new interview for InStyle magazine and the first since her split from Justin.
The Friends superstar responds to three major assumptions — that she “can’t keep a man,” that she refuses to have children because she’s selfishly devoted to her career, and that she is a sad and heartbroken woman.
I especially love one of her quotes from the article: “There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods.”
Jennifer also remarks on the pattern of sexism in tabloid media, especially when it comes to breakups. “When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned,” she says. “The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure. When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?”
